Sarah Nance is an interdisciplinary artist based in installation and fiber. Her site-responsive work constructs relationships between light, geology and time, elements that contribute to an understanding of place.
Nance is currently Assistant Professor in Fibres & Material Practices at Concordia University in Montréal. She has previously held academic positions at Virginia Commonwealth University, as Visiting Assistant Professor/Area Head (2015-16) and Fountainhead Fellow (2014-15), both in Fiber. Nance participated in consecutive artist residencies in Reykjavík and Skagaströnd, Iceland in 2013; much of her research continues to be based in Iceland and northern coastal regions of Canada and the US.
